Lately I’ve been chatting with photographers who express their complaint with digital photography. While it’s now superior to the traditional analog photographs, there’s still this “void” of emotion. The resulting image is missing what the photographer’s feeling the moment he captures the picture. In other words, it’s difficult for photographers to convey their feelings about their photography objects accurately into the finished pictures.
On the other hand, painting is the complete opposite. A great painter can accurately convey his emotions into the finished product. Not only that, he can get the audience to feel it, too. Check out this amazing 3D gold fish paintings from Riusuke Fukahori:
Just looking at that video alone, I’m mesmerized to the life-like quality of Fukahori-san’s paintings, and I think I understand a little bit more why the fusion techniques of photography and painting has become more popular nowadays…
Salute to artists who continually enrich our lifes,
